Transportation Information


▌ Taipei Metro system/ MRT

The Taipei Metro system, called the Mass Rapid Transit or MRT, is the easiest and fastest way to get around Taipei. Not only are signs and announcements made in both Mandarin and English, but also the lines for boarding are clearly marked and the stops are numerous. The fare ranges from $20~ $50, depending on the distance you travel.

SHU is near Jingmei station on the Songshan-Xindian line, and is a 10-15-minute walk from Exit 2. SHU Student ID Cards can double up as the MRT’s EASYCARD. You can add value directly onto your SHU Student ID Card at all MRT stations and convenience stores (ex: 7-Eleven).

◎ Note: The EasyCard is useful and convenient for both the MRT system and bus rides.


▌ Bus

Taipei’s bus system is convenient as well, but can be a bit complicated. We recommend you use the MRT unless you are certain about the bus route and the stop.
